evening. law-enforcement going house-to-house in the greater boston area searching for the terror suspect that is armed and possibly wired with explosives. the fbi and law enforcement searching with the 19 year-old who has managed to elude capture since this fire fight late last night. the second suspect in the monday boston marathon bombing. his brother tamerlan tsarnaev is dead and the boston area was under a lockdown and tell one hour ago urged jews stayed behind locked doors and told they were given the all clear to leave their homes. the largest shutdown in the history of any metropolitan area. here is the timeline. 10:20 p.m. last night and armed robbery reeorted at a 711 near the m.i.t. campus shortly after police received reports of shots fired on the campus. police responded to the scene and discovered in may t. campus police officer john collier shot in his car and was transported where he was pronounced dead. then the brothers hijacked a car then released him unharmed and a gas station but then less than one hour later it after it adjacent to the boston suburb during that chase
, you're very close to that car and everything that's taking place. have you heard anything from law enforcement to you and other residents in the area about evacuating and staying toward the front of the building? >> yeah, we had. what seemed to be army personnel and knocked on our door, told us to lock up the doors, go to the back of the house and don't come out and stay low. >> is that where you are? you seem close to the activity. >> right now, we -- i'm with a few of my roommates here, and we're in the living room. kind of watching what's being televised so i can stay on skype with you. >> and you posted photos on twitter and you said your twitter handle is akitz. and you said you just posted a photo of the bomb robot. and earlier this evening, you posted some photos of bullet holes in your home. we're going to put those up. can you describe what was taking place at that time? >> yes, so, we actually -- my roommates and i didn't even notice the bullet holes until at least an hour and a half later. and then we saw the significant hole through the westward wall in our house. and w
multiple times and killed. then, an outbust in watertown, two suspects engaged in a firefight with law enforcements. witnesses reported hearing at least three blast. one eyewitness we spoke to said that he saw the suspects tossing what appeared to be hand grenaded and a pressure cooker bomb at law enforcement officials. i want to bring now in nbc's justice correspondent pete williams live in washington now. >> reporter: well a couple of things. number one, we have heard that one police officer was killed earlier tonight. and now, we hear there may have been a second police officer killed. we have one report about that. as for the two people who were arrested tonight -- or the two, let's use the suspects related to this incident here, we know that one is in custody, and we believe now that we have had at least one report that the other, authorities up there, may be dead. i think they're trying to confirm that now. they don't know for sure. and that's one of the reasons you earlier saw that report that they wanted people to stay in their homes and lock their doors. another possibility is
the doors locked and not open the door unless there is a uniform identified law enforcement officer on the other side of it. >> part of that process included controlled explosions. police say it was done merely out an abundance of caution. authorities hoping for some evidence as to dzhokhar's whereabouts. nbc news national investigative correspondent michael issakof is on the ground. >> we've been promised a briefing for several hours now that was going to give us an update on where things stood. clearly, it's a fluid situation. the last one we got just about an hour and a half ago was there have been some new leads authorities were pursuing. what that meant we do not know. clearly they do not have tsarnaev in custody right now. they still have very deep concerns about the threat he poses and the threat that others -- that an accomplice or accomplices may pose. and the most significant threat of all is the fact there might be ieds out there like the one found this morning that have been -- that have left on the streets of boston. making it very difficult, even if they get tsarnaev,
that just passed here. this was a key area, an area where a lot of law enforcement was gathering. we saw a truck. there were armed personnel on it. we saw bomb sniffing dogs from the fbi. really, the impression was they were searching for an ied. something you would see in a theater of war, in a combat zone, not here in the streets of boston. you still have a lot of personnel. some have slowly been pulling back. again, it's a very active scene that's going on right now. we don't know the status. we don't know where this individual is, whether he's close. whether he's in custody. but by creating a huge perimeter around this particular area, what they do hope to do is either flush him out, or at least tighten the noose. and so that's what they're trying to do. they are going door-to-door. they are canvassing different homes, they are trying to do a sweep. remember, these people, even though they were on the run, they hijacked -- they basically harnlg acked an individual and then they fled and they were still throwing out bombs we're told either bombs or grenades or some sort of pipe bomb.
quickly walk away from it, what is not normal. that we only have so many law enforcement people. we have a guy in times where the waterway and there may be a normal explanation for it. i get on the metra system and by putting my earphones and a listen to my music or whatever when that is probably not a very smart thing, particularly for a guy like me to do. but it is just being aware -- you know, it is so easy. when i went to vietnam ever went said, stay alert, stay alive. i think people will be a little bit more alert right now, but just look for things that are out of place. is an author.t is ned zsa,ler republican. 'd think throrism comes at all different forms and different faces, not just literally, but metaphorically, too. you cannot say that it is not political or that it is. it is hard to label active terrorism -- acts of terrorism sometimes providing it is up to with identifying terrorism. we sometimes let our guard down and i feel like we do not know when the time is to act. when something should be under suspicion. we wait for something to happen. tough one. is a you are
with police. law enforcement fills say that both are from the russian region near chechnya and have been living in the united states with family members for about a decade. their estranged uncle spoke if maryland a short time ago. >> jihad, turn yourself in. and act forgiveness. if the injured, and those who left, ask forgiveness from these people. if we're ashamed, people are ashame on the family, our family, you put shame on 9 entire chechen. >> across boston, an unprecedented situation. the entire city and metropolitan area, all surrounding suburbs effectively shut down. all mass transit suspended. no a no-fly zone in effect. people have been told to stay inside their homes. >> keep the doors locked, do not open the door unless there is a uniformed, identified law enforcement officer on other side of it, requesting to come inside. >> there have been victims, police say that the bombing suspect shot and killed, 26-year-old sean collier. an m.i.t. patrol officer around 10:30 on campus last night. a short time later, they reportedly carjacked a mercedes suv in cambridge. that led to a po
constitution all laws he united states of american against all enemies, foreign and domestic. and we pledged to perform work of national importance under civilian direction when required when i recited this pledge last week, i cannot imagine that work of national importance by civilians would be required here in boston so soon. but now, all of us need to take up this pledge. we all have service to perform and indeed, we are all move by the thousands of people who stepped forward in a moment of tragedy and confusion to serve. i want to salute everyone who ran toward the victims, despite risk to themselves. everyone who gave blood, everyone who volunteered shelter for stranded runners, i want to salute the members of law enforcement who are protecting us as we speak and to thank the people around the world who are sending messages of hope and solidarity. before us, all the civilian work of national and international interest, no one has to take a a formal oath. we know instinctively that we stise to the od act because of our common humanity. that is what makes us erans. one nation under god, a
told to shelter in place, as you well know. and as a result of this, law enforcement authorities are very hopeful that they will be able to conclude their search by going door to door. last check, they had about 70% of that accomplished. we're still waiting for an afternoon briefing. we don't know when that will occur. but in the early morning briefing, they did say there were new developments they were trying to run down and firm up and they would bring us those at the afternoon briefing. of course, as you know, things are changing quite rapidly and as a result of that, that briefing may get pushed back once again. so, that's what we know at this point. and they came, the suspects, as you know, came from an area in russia quite close to chechnya. we are still translating those tapes that we got from the father, an interview that he did with reuters. it's in russian, we're translating it. a number of the family members have been speaking out with very diverse opinions on this whole situation. so we're working on those, we'll bring them to you when we have them. maria and andrew,
on how they are going to enforce the law. >> breaking news on the m.i.t. campus tonight, where a campus police officer has been shot and killed, there have been reports of numerous blasts or explosions at this point we don't know if these are controlled explosions of officers detonating an item or if they were true explosions. this is what we know at this hour, a police officer was answering a disturbance call when he was shot and killed. we understand it had something to do with a carjacking but that is not completely confirmed. since then, police officers have swarmed the campus and federal agents have been on the campus and homeland security is on the campus as well. there's an active search is, we believe there's one person in custody being questioned, but the nature of the questioning is unclear. we will keep a close eye on it for you. tnchlt . >> the mayor of west texas said that 30 to 40 people are believed to be dead. caused mass devastation. four city blocks leveled. 75 homes and an apartment complex. this part is very sad, firefighters responding to the fire prp actually caugh
and it was a scene with, you know, scores of law enforcement, state, federal, you know, bomb teams, s.w.a.t., you name it, they were there. a big perimeter setup for a manhunt to find the second suspect. >> eric, thank you. willie, when you get a sense of the danger right now that faces watertown at this very moment after all that went down last night and the killing of an mit police officer, the car-jacking, the robbing, the bombs in the streets, the ied attached to this body, you get a sense of the suspect. you get a sense in terms of what law enforcement was able to piece together since the bombing in boston where you had pieces of pressure cookers and things that made you think they may be homemade devices and this may be home-grown and this made a little rudimentary, if i may, but now you find out from the work that they have done and all of the pictures and the video they have put together, you find out that they stood there to watch. they stood there to watch after the bombing. that says something. secondly you find out they have been in the united states as long as a year. may have milita
not answer the door unless the people at the door can clearly identify themselves as law enforcement officials. this mayhem unfolded overnight starting with a shooting on the campus of the massachusetts institute of technology in cambridge. that's one mile from where we are standing right now at the scene of the boston marathon attack. >> an officer who was killed on the campus of m.i.t. was killed a short time later, a carjacking took place and a police chase took place after that with reports of explosives involved. during the chase, the transportation authority officer was wounded in a shoot-out and suspect number one was critically wounded and later died at the hospital. we expect a press conference in 15 minutes at the hospital. >> we have drew griffin with us right now on the streets of watertown, massachusetts. again, this is the area right now which is a very active crime scene where people are being told not to leave their houses where it is believed that suspect number two, the man involved in the boston marathon bombings and the man involved in this car chase and manhunt,
to cell phones? >> i think they didn't they would have to escape. when law enforcement figured out different pieces of this puzzle, they panicked and didn't have an alternative plan -- they were so focused on what they were doing, nothing else became important and obviously, it would have been. >> another photo of the suspect coming in right now, it shows him when he was on the wrestling team. i believe, we're going to put that up in just a second. it just came in. they got it up in the control room. we're not positive, if indeed this gray honda is occupieoccup. it could suggest as well, aps someone else was involved. >> well, maybe, george, but the idea of a stealing a car or carjacking someone else, is an act of desperation. you have seen him acting in a desperate way since basically the 7-eleven. >> yeah that's true. brad, thanks very much. >>> jon karl at the white house right now. we know we're getting more details about the president's briefing in the situation room. >> george, as you can imagine this has consumed the president, entire intelligence and national security teams
us and does that make the manhunt more difficult for law enforcement and more dangerous for them and citizens? >> reporter: sure. absolutely. and add on top of that, if they don't capture him tonight, what happens tomorrow? what happens this weekend? how long can they expect bo bostonians to remain in their homes? and that's a very difficult question. on the other hand, if they can account for all ieds that might be out there, they are not going to be able to -- >> i'm going to have to hold you right there, michael mayor menino is there and i believe we're going to start the press conference. let's listen in. >> good evening, everybody. and thank you, all of you, for your patience and to all of the viewers and listeners in the area who have also been very patient. i'm going to have colonel alben give a quick update on what we can say about the ongoing investigation. i'll have a couple of comments then about the stay indoors request and the "t" and then we will turn it over to the mayor and then to chief devoe from watertown here. first to colonel alben. >> thank you, governor. go
failed to pass background checks. five democrats even voted against the new law. all of them from progun states why did the background checks fail. sane people stopped from buying guns. every sane person knows that checks will not keep guns out of the bad people. they will buy weapons illegally. if the president were really serious about protecting malcolm jenkins from gun violence he would federalize gun crimes and attach a criminal justice component to the gun check legislation. here is what mr. obama should do. registering firearms should be in this country. use the gun in the commission of a crime, 10 years. law abiding people with guns are not the problem. so let's give the police a big advantage. if the cops even find unregistered gun by a stop and frisk, something like that. it's a felony. that would take gun criminals off the streets fast obviously drastically cut gun violence. president obama's gun legislation is targeted, pardon the pun at law abiding people. not criminals. and that's the reason. he isn't getting anywhere. some stats to back my opinion up. 2011 the fbi reports
. >> reporter: that's right. a source tells law enforcement source tells susan candiotti that according to the video surveillance, the two suspects stayed at the scene of the crime. they stayed and watched the crowd, they made sure the bombs went off, and then they walked away casually. this is one of the things that may have been of interest to law enforcement when they figured out who in fact they were looking for, is the behavior of these individuals as they walked away from the crowd. the law enforcement source also says that there is another video of one of the suspects leaving his bag at the scene, but that video has not been released, and this source says that's because they feared what might happen to that suspect if anybody were to come in contact with him. i don't personally understand that explanation entirely, but that's the reason that this law enforcement source said, that that video was not released. in any case, the bigger point here is that these two individuals, their behavior was they stuck around, they watched, they wanted to make sure that the bombs went off and the
. you mentioned the amount of law enforcement and the different law enforcement agencies there responding to that. i also want to share with our viewers an alert that has come through from m.i.t.'s emergency alert system. this is from about 30 minutes ago where they are still advising those on the campus of m.i.t. to please remain indoors saying that police have not determined that the campus is safe. that sf in response to a shooting on campus. in that case an m.i.t. police officer was reporting to a response of a disturbance when he was shot. authorities say that he was shot multiple times officials are saying there are no other victims in that shooting, they are still investigating. no arrests have been made. they are pursuing a suspect there. about 4 1/2 miles away from cambridge, where there was another instance of violence there this evening. at least three explosions and several gun shots. we do not have reports of injuries at watertown. when something like this happens, there is a massive law enforcement response at the time that this violence first started. witne
, law enforcement here in boston massachusetts released new photographs, images of two individual suspects wanted for questioning. they're presumed armed and extremely dangerous. those who see them are asked not to try to apprehend them or approach them. two new photographs were now released by the fbi. you're looking at those now. the individuals wanted for questioning appear to be young men, one wearing a white hat, one wearing a black hat. even more photographs. here are still newer photographs just released in the last 15 minutes or so by the fbi. you see the two individuals standing next to each other in the top photograph and there is another photograph of the young man in the white hat wanted for questioning in these terrorist attacks. these were just released in the last few minutes. interestingly, in the middle of the night bit fbi. to recap about tonight's activities. at roughly 10:00 or so this evening on the campus of the massachusetts institute of technology, a prestigious university here in the boston area, specifically in cambridge, there was a shooting of a police
. no one should approach them. no one should attempt to apprehend them except law enforcement. >> reporter: and here is another look at suspect two. there is a closer image there. the question besides who are these men is where are they now. investigators are urging anyone with information to use their tip line, 1-800-call-fbi. eric rasmussen, ktvu channel 2 news. >>> more details on today's developments. the president anne first lady traveled to boston for a public service and private meetings with bomb victims and their families. his mother tells ktvu aaron is recovering after a successful organization on his leg. today people left flowers, notes and flaks on boylston street in memory of the three people killed on monday. >> everyone has come together as a community. as an entire nation and the world. >> this morning president obama offered words of comfort at an interfaith service. >> as you begin this long journey of recovery, your city is with you. your commonwealth is with you. your country is with you. we will be with you as you learn to stand and walk and yes, run again. of that i
? does it indicate more about the investigation than law enforcement is saying explicitly? what happens next? joining us now is don borelly, a 25 year veteran of the fbi once served as assistant special agent in charge of the terrorism task force and now chief operating officer of a group that is a strategic consultancy. thank you for being here. nice to have you back. >> thank you for having me. >> how important and what does it mean for the fbi to call these two men not persons of interest or people they want to talk to but to call them suspects. that is a term of art, is it not? >> i think so. you're actually right on that. there has to be a high degree of confidence these individuals are involved in the plot to plant the bombs. otherwise you would have seen softer language and i'm sure there was a lot of discussion whether to release these photographs. you're not accusing them, per se, but you've certainly put the public on this worldwide manhunt to find these guys. so there has to be a high degree of confidence before you're going to walk out on that limb. >> we are told the fbi is
refrained from making any effort to apprehend the two men and instead to call law enforcement. with the review of social media post catherine has our report. >> determination it if it was an international domestic act of terrorism with the intelligence chief updated lawmakers on the case but we don't know if it was planned and executed by a terrorist organization foreign or domestic or an individual act. loan-loss and extremist mercer and the determined to attack. >> with key bomb components intact and investigations on going home and security said new leads are expected soon. >> there are tracers in the gunpowder, the pellets, the ball bearings can be traced to the manufacture and the device itself, the explosive device itself is the best evidence that we have. >> in addition to still images and video fox news is told there is the significance of social media footprint providing new these. 30,000 messages were collected within 1 mile radius of the finish line 24 hours before through a 24 hours after. they seemed out of place or coded including about to boston hotels or analyz
:15, 5:30 p.m. eastern time, law enforcement officials put out the photographs, the images of two individuals who are suspects in the terrorist attacks on monday. since then another image, one that was found on facebook and authenticated by "the new york times" has emerged with a better photographic image of one of those suspects. now, perhaps entirely unrelated, at roughly 10:30 this evening, an officer was killed on the campus of mi.t. in cambridge, massachusetts. in addition in cambridge, there was a carjacking that may or may not have been related to the officer killed. then in addition, not long after that, in watertown, massachusetts, one suspect was apprehended. the fbi has been present and the significance for international viewers who may not know this, the fbi is federal bureau of investigation so they would be involved in big major crimes, not just local crimes. the fbi was on the campus of m.i.t. in cambridge. they were also present in watertown, massachusetts, where this one suspect was apprehended. other than that we don't know. we have three events. they might be co
. if you could stand by, we're going to go to watertown right now and just updating. these law enforcement officials say the activity overnight they have been dealing with, including the killing of one of the two suspects in the boston marathon bombing, they are directly related to the bombing. the two suspects have military experience and appear to have been in the u.s. for as long as a year, officials tell nbc news. and may have international ties. with that information, joining us now from watertown, massachusetts, is michael isikoff, who's there on the scene. michael, what can you tell us? >> reporter: well, these are two cold-blooded terrorists, in the words of police. we saw a pretty brazen example of that tonight. here's the sequence of events as we understand them right now. at about 10:20 last night, there's a robbery at a 7-eleven in cambridge. after that, an m.i.t. police officer was shot and killed in his head. at that point, the two suspects who are the suspects in the boston marathon bombing, engage in a carjacking and seize a black mercedes suv. the victim in that case, the
does law enforcement approach this scenario? what do you think the next few hours will look like? >> i think it will be a deliberative and careful process. as you say, they are closing in on the suspect and that is tightening. one of the concerns is does this individual have explosives attached to his body, has he taken someone hostage. is that wired explosively and we've seen that in other plots as the net tightened that the individuals decided to use explosives. >> we have boston p.d. on this, there's fbi, there's atf and massachusetts guardsmen. who is in the lead here? >> the lead will be the joint terrorism task force which is led by the fbi. so in a sense, they're organizing all of the constituent agencies and giving direction. i wonder, someone mentioned the events in the last three hour, this all was an attempted robbery. an m.i.t. rob shot and killed, grenades thrown from a vehicle. report of the dead suspect having an ied on his person. characterize, scale from one to ten, level of danger as they get closer to this remaining suspect? >> i would say it's about a level eight. b
trying to escape law enforcement. here's how it played out. around 10:00 p.m. last night, the suspects robbed a store. they then proceeded to fatally shoot an m.i.t. security officer and hijack a mercedes suv. the owner of that vehicle was held hostage for half an hour while the two brothers pulled $800 out of an atm. they released the owner of the mercedes unharmed. police chased the suspects into watertown, where this shootout took place. the suspects exchanged fire with police and threw explosives towards them. at one point, tamerlan sarn ev got out of the car wearing an ied strapped to his chest and was shot by police. his body was run over by dzhokah tsarnaev as he fled the scene. at present the manhunt continues. the police are looking for a younger brother and a possible accomplice. let's bring in nbc justice correspondent, pete williams. this is a quickly developing situation. how many people are the police looking for right now? >> i think they're not sure. i think we can say probably three. dzhokah tsarnaev, the person who is the man with the white hat and the marathon bombin
thousands of law enforcement military personnel searching for this 19-year-old? >> well, they're working very hard obviously to find him. the question is whether or not he is still in the area. you have to do two three things. follow up on any leads they get based on tips, they're going to identify some locations where he might go to seek shelter -- family, friends, neighbors, that sort of thing -- then they'll look at the area they saw him last. that is the area of the shootout. they'll process the scene to see whether there is any blood evidence there that might actually be connected to somebody other than his brother. that would help them determine whether he is injured. >> his 26-year-old brother is now dead. we're told in the shootout with law enforcement he was discovered having explosive, an explosive vest almost like a suicide bomb vest. that's why there is so much concern that perhaps the younger brother, the 19-year-old who is still on the loose right now may also be wearing some sort of explosive device. that could be extremely dangerous. >> sure. that is the reason why they'r
for law enforcement, for civilians, people in the neighborhood. so i want to be careful in what's -- in our reporting. >> we do. they want to take the suspect alive and avoid any casualties. the suspect has already killed a number of people. >> yeah, let's hope no one else is hurt. >> drew, what are you seeing right now. >> just more of the same, erin. just different kinds of vehicles. we saw s.w.a.t. vehicles. we saw different kind of, you know, tactical vehicles all heading down the direction. david fitzpatrick, my producer, is heading that way. we asked him to -- if he sees, smells, smoke to call in immediately to tell us what is happening. but just to recap, other than that first burst of gunfire we haven't heard any gunfire since. but that is what sparked this tremendous amount of activity from local law enforcement heading all in the same direction. and it just seems like in an instant that entire ramped up feeling that we had last night here in downtown watertown has surfaced again where all the police are once again on edge and we're just waiting to find out what's going
by at this hour for a news conference from watertown, from law enforcement official there is. we will bring that to you the very second it starts. in the meantime, let's go to drew griffin on the streets of watertown all night tracking this story. let's get the very latest. drew? >> reporter: i can tell you that the suspect we saw getting into the car, the one that was ordered naked, has been questioned now three different times by the different various agencies we have here. and my producer, david fitzpatrick, just observed the man. he is still being held here on the scene, which to me is somewhat peculiar. he was, as you say, ordered to strip naked completely. obviously, the police were very concerned because earlier in the evening during this chase we were told by the massachusetts state police spokesperson that multiple possible explosive devices were used against police here at the incident in watertown, from witnesses who saw and heard what happened, we believe that some of those possible explosive devices were actually thrown from a fleeing car at the police. so it was a very chaotic
were the law enforcement officials doing their job. so you have a community that is very much cooperating with law enforcement in this lockdown. everybody understands the importance and the need to stay out of the way and let the officials do their job, as they go literally door to door to juror, to try to find this 19-year-old suspect. so, yes, this has been a day like no other. i can guarantee you, in the city metropolitan area around boston. >> and the thinking, bill, in terms of going door to door, the thinking is, perhaps someone is hiding them in their homes? it's quite fascinating that the police are going door to door in all of these homes in that region. >> the thinking, maria, is that this 19-year-old may be holding somebody hostage in their home. you're not supposed to open the door to anybody unless they identify themselves clearly as a law enforcement official. so it is clear, they are still going door to door, and it is possible, they believe, that this 19-year-old chechen could be holding somebody hostage or could be on the move and trying to, you know, find a l
and overwhelming presence of law enforcement. and they're back now to the point where they think they have a sense of where he is. as they're are bringing in resources you can imagine u-turns and law enforcement front teams with word that. they have special s.w.a.t. teams responding they know how to deal with something like that. they know this is a cop killer, they don't want to be one of the cops kill sod they're going to go in with caution, heavy body armor and weapons. >> i want to go to peer thomas. you said there was a fear the suspect could be watching the media and fact they sent everybody into the street again makes you wonder the timing. was that a diversion? they didn't want him to know perhaps they spotted him? they were on him? >> that wouldo be that this was gainsmanship by law enforcement officials. they were so concerned he was monitoring them, they didn't want to give hints ofr operations so we have calls out in washington making -- may take time for information to flow back here but we're on the case and hope to have information shortly. >> and again richard clark, dick moving in
. let me assure you the subcommittee is ready to help in any way we can to help law enforcement against perpetrators and planners of this act of terror and insure ensure the full force of justice is -- to think something like that taking place anything this committee do we stand ready. i want to express disappointment with regard to you and me in the subcommittee. in somecas has not takimportantm disappointed that the depant bee authities the committee to expand federal prison -- it has fallen from 23,000 in 2006 to 12,800 in fy14. this is an area where leadership is necessary and we have made it very clear that i want to support you in this effort that we need to see to take it seriously in an energetic way and we have not seen it. why can't that picture with the entire federal government and why can't the ncaa -- from prisons. you can put a man or woman in prison for 50 years and give them no work and no dignity. this will not displace american jobs but a proven way to end recidivism to make progress. i am also dissatisfied and disappointed with a noncommittal response to my suggestio
of that fight. how did he -- and law enforcement is doing a great job, but how is it that he got away? how far could he have gotten? >> well, he could be anywhere. they still -- the operative theory as far as everybody that we have heard as of midday today was that he was still here, or in the immediate boston area. but as one of your guest said, he's a local boy. he knows this area and knows where to hide and where to go. the hope is that they've got him, but he certainly isn't making himself known. and one of the things about keeping everybody inside is that if he does go outside, if he does try and get away, he would be pretty easily spotted. i mean, this is really -- it is like a ghost town with the exception of the military and an awful lot of media waiting here. the thinking is you would know him. this is where they chased him to and where they last had him. so it makes sense that there's a heavy search here. but as you know, the public transit, the amtrak trains, everything has shut down in this whole metropolitan area, and a lot of people are looking for him. >> and there's really only
simply want to do our job. >> they wanted to take him alive. that would have been a huge help for law enforcement if hay had him alive if they had the chance to question him. >> they're being very careful at this point and quite patient on the hopes that perhaps they still can take dzhokhar, even if unexpected. >> let's be clear, they're not being patient and risking the possibility that he's going to get away been they would prefer to take him alive. they will take him dead. they're not going to take the chance again of letting him get away, but being able to talk to him, being able to question him, being able to figure out whether there could be others involved in this would be incredibly valuable for law enforcement here and that would be their preference, for certai i bfbi ofer brad garret i aling ut thi completely conic personality. we hear about this wonderful friend to all of his friends. it's not your usual loner who had no friends out there, and then we know what he is suspected of doing. try to help us through this. >> okay. diane, step out of terrorism just for one second a
law enforcement find them. >> though it may be difficult, the nation is counting on those with information to come forward and provide it to us. >> reporter: the big break in the case came just hours after president obama delivered a rousing speech to the bombing victims and to the city of boston itself at a service. [ applause ] >> reporter: president obama came to boston with an inspirational message for the victims of the marathon bombings including those who lost limbs in the attack. >> we will all be with you as you learn to stand and walk and, yes, run again. of that i have no doubt, you will run again. [ applause ] >> reporter: the first lady and former massachusetts governor mitt romney were among the dignitaries who joined the president at the historic cathedral of the holy cross. the president said the deadly attack did not intimidate the city of boston. >> it should be pretty clear by now that they picked the wrong city to do it. not here in boston. >> reporter: the president also visited with marathon volunteers and thanked them for helping victims at the bombi
in custody. are people being impatient? >> i'm not sure. law-enforcement is taking the collaborative approach and media has handled themselves wear and appreciates the deliberation. hardest on the people of the boston area under house arrest so to speak waiting to be over but the deliberate approach is the wise and say the approach. gerri: the wise and a safer approach. we're getting closer to the press conference starting. we will have officials from where watertown has been conducted all day and until we get there we will continue talking. one of the big question today has been whether this young man has helped at this point* or operating on his own? what do you think? >> it certainly appears the vast majority of the call prior to this was his older brother. it seems the two of them functioning as a unit of the intel last night's event when violence broke them apart. so if he has outside help in edition remains to be seen. law enforcement is all over the support structure. they should be able to discover soon enough what the rest of the support structure looks like. gerri: the key to that i
with this legislation. we are a safer country when law- enforcement knows who is here, has their fingerprints, photos, conduct background checks, and no wonder these to look at needles through haystacks. both the refugee program and asylum program have been significantly strengthened in the past five years, such that we are much more careful about screening people in determining who should or should not be coming into the country. if there are any changes that our homeland security experts tell us we need to be made -- s, security experts tell us need to be made -- a there were widespread erroneous reports of arrests being made. this emphasizes how important it is to let the facts come out before jumping to any conclusions. mostieve this is the balanced piece of immigration legislation that has been ever produced. the american people and all of our colleagues should read this bill over the next few weeks. they will have ample time to look at every page and every paragraph before we go to markup in the committee. what they will find is a bill the secures our borders, combats the overstay, cracks down
be an accomplice as well. police and law enforcement are searching high and low for those two men. meantime, in watertown, massachusetts, that's right near boston, a mass impolice and military presence where officials believe the 19-year-old man dzhokhar tsarnaev could be holed up. the crews are planning to wait him out. local police say they could continue through the weekend. nearby in cambridge, that is right near the home of the suspected bombers and their relatives, police plan to perform some sort of controlled explosion. also right now in southern massachusetts, the campus of umass dartmouth is being evacuated. the school has confirmed someone connected to the bombings is enrolled as a student there. we're trying to clear up those details for you. we know this began last night with reports of gunfire on the m.i.t. campus. police say the man shot and killed 26-year-old sean collier, an m.i.t. police officer, who was just sitting in his cruiser. his broad was riddled with several gunshots. the two men car jacked a mercedes suv at gunpoint. police began a chase while those suspects were
considered as a possible hideout? >> well, as you know, chris, they started with a 20-square-block area. law enforcement suggests they've been through about 80% of that. we are looking for a needle in a haystack. and look, we know his brother took a lot of hits in the gunfight with law enforcement last night before he was killed. you might suggest that this 19-year-old man we're looking for, he may have been hit, too. so he could have crawled under a building someplace. he could be barricaded inside of a house somewhere by himself, or holding a hostage, or he may, just may have been able to steal another car and our worst case scenario and get out of town. once law enforcement finishes this search of this 20 square block, then they have to regroup and figure out what cars have been stolen in the area that he might have used to get away from, or did we miss him and do we go back again? and, chris, i know we're going into the weekend, but how long do you keep a city like this bottled up and tell everybody to stay inside? >> well, is there any way of tracking besides basically hard target, i me
talked about the fact and law enforcement talked about the fact that they'd been through about 60% to 70% of the entire area. i'm assuming that in the hours since then, it's now, of course, 4:05 eastern time, but they made progress close to 100%. >> reporter: yeah, but what's the area? remember, the entire city is in lockdown now. they have told everybody in boston not to leave their homes, not to open their doors, except to law enforcement officers. so while they might be able to inspect the immediate area around here in watertown, it seems a herculean task to be able to do that for the entire metropolitan region that's essentially in lockdown right now. look, there's a massive police and military presence, actually, here, actually, it's right behind me, the staging area is right behind where i'm standing here at the parking lot of the watertown arsenal here. we've had early this morning convoys of military humvees, bus loads of police and state troopers coming in here and assembling for what we thought was going to be some sort of massive confrontation or assault here. we had blackhawk
. they plastered their pictures distributed by law enforcement among themselves and meanwhile, they have identified two potential suspects captured on surveillance videos taken before the deadly blast. the part about officials having identified two suspects turns out to be correct but the two young men were not those suspects. fbi assistant john miller was quick to debunk the photos like the high school kid in the "new york post" showing how this latest journal malfeasance came to be. >> i've seen a couple pictures on the internet and in the paper today. until we hear from authorities, should we discount pictures floating around all over the place? >> those are not pictures that will be released today by authorities. >> just wondering. >> here's what happens. those pictures were on the internet yesterday morning and they started going viral in deficit sites and difference infusion places pick those up, we'll take that information and then it ends up leaking back to the newspaper and comes out in one big circle. >> pictures start on the internet and law enforcement officials pass them internally and
should attempt to apprehend them except law enforcement. let me reiterate that caution. do not take any action on your own. if you see these men, contact law enforcement. >> anyone with information is asked to contact the fbi at 1-800-call-fbi or go to their website at bostonmarathontips.fbi.gov. >> i believe and i think mostly talking to the rest of your show, they have video of these guys all the way through this event, lots of incriminating video, i'm sure, which brings them right to the crime scene and away from the crime scene. with he know from our own reporter how they behaved afterwards. also, what the fbi said today specifically, rick deslauriers said, look at these photos, no description. we're not giving you the height, weight, ethnicity. forget every other photo you saw and tell us who these people are. so they want, for some reason or another, they want the public to just focus on these two exact people and these two exact images. >> do not lead people? >> do not lead people. maybe they want that information kept so they can convict these people. maybe they don't want to re
police are also serving on the scene. there simply could not be a stronger concentration of law enforcement personnel anywhere in the the country right now as there is in the small blue collar town of watertown, massachusetts that find itself so in the middle of the focus this morning. you have to believe that folks felt that the worst of this had taken place on monday at that finish line, and those two bombings that left 160 people injured and three people dead, but last night it exploded in a whole new way, an explosion, a car chase with these two suspects after a quick stop at a 711, they carjacked another man, stole his mercedes. thankfully they spared his life. he was pushed out of his own car, he ran into the 711 and said they are trying to kill me. the people in the 711 thought that he was drunk until they finally realized that he was just in complete shock and was indeed revealing to them that he had literally just been in the car driving around for 30 minutes with these two suspects. what a harrowing experience that must have been for him. then tamerlan the older brothe
of the resources from law enforcement and military on the ground and some we can see here. helicopters from police and 50 guardsmen and more military humvees coming in earlier and dozens of law enforcement if not hundreds and vehicles scattered across water and the city. is this enough based on what you understand they are trying to do at the moment? >> it's a tremendous deployment of resources and certainly you have to defer to the judgment of the officials on the ground if it's the right amount. obviously the more, the better in this type of situation. you have to look at the possibility as michael mentioned earlier that there could be additional devices placed around the greater boston area. you also have to look at any other potential components to what could be a broader conspiracy. we don't know the steps they took to first deal with him and try to get him to surrender if he is holed up and secondly to understand where there might be additional devices around the greater boston area and third, to identify any other individuals who might be in any way associated with the brothers is where the
law enforceme enforcement. give us a few details of the military hardware you're seeing. >> right now so far it's been split. and i would say the majority of it is being the massachusetts state police, the local campus police are sort of doing perimeter security around the campus as they try to help students get off campus. a lot of students hanging out outside here trying to get a ride home or perhaps someone to pick them up. then we saw the helicopter off in the distance and we know just sort of trying to look through the buildings and the trees, i know it landed somewhere in the interior of the campus. and i know that the dorm -- dzhokhar's dorm is actually over on that other side of campus. i don't know if the helicopter landed near the dorm, but it was definitely on sort of the other side of campus from the entrance where we are and where a lot of the students are coming out. then we saw that huge tactical vehicle from the massachusetts state police roll in after about four to five police cars came through. and then literally like i said just in the last ten minutes off in the di
in the area and actually heard those shots fired and moments later a rush of law enforcement, the scene on franklin street which is on water town. it is a residential area. and you can see there are a bunch of homes right there that are very close together. very active scene. >> shepard: right now in downtown boston there are police and swat vehicles as you can see streaming in that direction. i see two men in the front of that. and they are flying past a large swat headquarters has been down here and they are all headed right this minute toward watertown getting straight on to the highway and in that direction. we can't know yet what the reports of gunfire are. you can see from fox 25 in boston, this is the same area that has been cordoned off all day where 20 blocks of town were shut down for the day. it's it the spot that began the lockdown of boston first we know in the history of this city where people have sheltered in place all day. the drive in from the airport all day. as if there was a holiday for all religions and no one was moving on any street. the drive from the airport to
imaginable law enforcement vehicle today come through this area as they were doing those house to house searches on 20 blocks here in watertown and we saw that increased police presence but they weren't walking nearly as quickly nor with as much purpose as we have seen in the last couple of minutes. clearly there is something going on. there were reports of shots fired at another area of watertown not where we are standing right now. there are a lot more people on the streets and we're not just talking about law enforcement. that's because as soon as we heard at that press conference after 6:00 p.m. that the stay indoors had been lifted, we saw so many people going out on the streets. they are bringing their dogs out for a walk and as those vehicles are pealing around the corner and down the street behind me, there were a number of people gathered around the street corner. they started cheering, clapping, saying go get him. where exactly they were headed, that is being looked into. we don't want to dive into speculation at this point but as you can see, there is a lot of focus from peop
night they responded to a 911 call. the caller was a man who just stabbed his brother in law. as officers arrived he came at them with a weapon. >> the man ended up attacking the officers. prior to that he cut his brother in law. >> he was shot and killed by police after not following the orders to put down the hammer. >> after san francisco police chief greg suhr pulled it off the table, where a taser could have saved a life. . >> reporter: it is unclear if it will change the position on requesting tasers but some say the city needs to come up with more non-lethal options. >> in this situation if the taser was available it would have been used. >> with the tools we have the officers did what they had to do to defend themselves. >> reporter: the aclu didn't common directly but said any officer involved shooting raises questions about other techniques. as for the stabbing victim he is suspected to survive. he is doing fine. live in san francisco, paul chambers, ktvu channel 2 news. >>> a court ruled against a police officer who claims she was fired because of gender discrimina
we know from law enforcement officials, stuck around, hung around, lingered. easily found afterward. it doesn't seem like they have expertise to be sociopaths and terrorists and horrible individuals, but they didn't -- they didn't have the wherewithal necessarily to get away. >> that kind of terrorism can occur whether it's international or domestic, tim mcveigh, one or two cohorts and not much else. we do think of things as big conspiracies, it sometimes doesn't happen. >> counterterrorism efforts are always developing. evolution of strategy. assuming this went down as we now believe it did, with two brothers acting alone or in concert with someone else. what adjustments will the law enforcement, counterterrorism community need to make? >> one thing for the american public to suspect, we are a big society with lots of mobility and lots of people coming in and out. there is going to be some level of risk for that, we saw that op monday. but we still had the boston marathon. it begins with our expectations of what kind of safety we have. there is going to be -- we don't know the fact
of an of of the military is doing something that is violative of the law, on the military side as opposed to the civilian side. >> okay. i want to also make you, bring you back to homeland committee oversight subcommittee that held an investigatory hearing last year that concluded that the fbi's failure, refusal to tell the army about hasan's al qaeda connection led to the fort hood terror attacks. in the audience today, i just want to recognize our sergeant shawn mullins who still has two of hasan's bullets in his body, and sergeant alonzo who hasan shot six times, as well as one of the widows of major nidal hasan act that day. to twant to apologize on behalf of the government for failing you, and the president said when he met t you would be taken care of. and whether or not we get to the bottom of is this an act of workplace violence or an act of terror, and whether not you are owed your purple heart, just like the people that were killed in the pentagon on 9/11 or not, so that you can be properly treated, is something that i'm going to commit myself to pick and another for chairman will as well which
